this day's headlines debate rages in france as it marks the death but for a man accused of genocide whose walls cost millions of lives we look at whether 2 centuries of poleon merits today's fanfare and celebration. for me to a hero he did a lot for the evolution of france but it cost a lot of freedom a lot of sacrifice at the human level $2.00 you see his big mistake may be to have reestablished slavery. york's governor touches a raw nerve vising unvaccinated people to avoid their grandparents amid allegations his own mismanagement is to blame for nursing home deaths we hear from an activist who lost her father at a care home in long line. as more states in the u.s.

pass bills that would bar transgender participants from competition coming up to the governor of kansas now vetoes the back and claiming it was send an unwelcome message you put it all up for today. this is just a story to. you that this woman or anything all the women want to see. you do to. transform just coincidence. one of russia kevin only this wednesday morning with the latest from us for you is just turned 9 in the morning moscow time will 1st mention of those headlines france's most famous general is waging wars beyond the grave on the cultural front as the country pulls out all the stops to celebrate 200 years since napoleon's
2:02 am
death and debate still rages about whether or not it's high time to cancel the emperor seen by many as a genocidal tyrant to blame for the deaths of millions his fans though to this day hailed him as the nation's greatest ever hero charlotte had been scared as the fray in paris. napoleon bonaparte it's a name that everyone you know is a french emperor conqueror of nations 200 years after his death and his ideals still shape france but wasn't a polian a hero or a villain i'm pretty good. because he did good things he did a lot for the evolution of fronts but he also destroyed countries during his conquests in fact so it is a bit of both. would say he did a lot for france but obviously he made mistakes too from a foreign policy point of view this is one detail in his career in fact he invented everything through the civil code so indeed like all great man he did things that
2:03 am
are good and others that are bad and i think he did more good than bad for me is to a hero in the 121st century napoleon's legacy seems to be on shaky ground critics have described the french media as a racist sexist desperate and there was plenty of evidence to show that napoleon wouldn't cut the mustard in today's world for going for the 1st time in history we systematically used a racial criteria for gassing and exterminating a civilian population in a manner that was the most economical most rational and the end there were several 1000000 dead maybe some tens of millions of civilians dead murdered in this way simply because of the color of their skin and because napoleon had reintroduced slavery in the main french colony. despite the mounting case against new polian events all planned in france and belgium to mark the anniversary of his death there
2:04 am
is no question of allowing this anniversary to be stolen from us people know perfectly well that he reestablished slavery but you can't reduce him to that know what the figure has marked history like him while some former french presidents have shown. right away from commemorating napoleon president mcewan will know what he's due to lay a wreath at napoleon's to me in paris and to make an address to mark the anniversary trances in fact the only country in the world where slavery was as we established after its was abolished nobody has ever since such a thing and i were president the president of a so called country. would like to celebrate somebody who is associated with so many crimes that is acceptable is a day of shame mr merkel is not only making the word mistake but also
2:05 am
a political one and that's going to be. 'd even for the elections he also says that it's ludicrous that france continues to celebrate a loser but it was a disaster. because even if you don't care about black people in the corridors even if you do that if you don't care about. france who lost 1000000 soldiers. which is a lot for nothing. because of the debt of the day he lost everything for example for us all and. which was at this time 20 percent of the united states that's was lost because of. france had maybe even like sushi restaurant or that was lost even a racist or a nationalist person should say he's a because so does that change people's opinion of napoleon does it get weak in
2:06 am
these cases yes because in a way he helped france with certain things but it cost a lot of freedom and lot of sacrifice of the human level to wave them off at 5 b.c. his big mistake may be to have reestablished slavery but also he brought a lot to france who though his initiatives especially at all levels of administration and then he may have helped make some progress in certain countries maybe what we heard from university lecturer john laughlin he claims many of those seeking to counsel the emperor are ignoring certain values that maybe they've got in common with them. the fact is that he is a product of the french revolution and so the left if you like which would want to cancel him and dethrone him for being a racist or whatever. unfortunately is in a rather paradoxical position because of course the left supports the french revolution of which napoleon is a product domestically it is undeniable that his influence is immense and everybody
2:07 am
knows that the napoleonic code is still more or less in force that he invented or at least codify all kinds of other things including the administrative structure of france and obviously influence the army and the school system and so on and so on so yes he was a loser on the on the international stage because he was defeated. but he in a way he's not a loser really i would say domestically on the contrary his his influence for good or ill is undeniable throughout the centuries. in new york governor andrew cuomo as the news again this time for insinuating that unvaccinated people could kill their relatives that's after he himself was accused of allowing covert to spread in care homes the state's high number of deaths now being revealed maybe you will get a long haul syndrome that we're not really sure what it is yet but a lingering consequence of cold it or maybe you go home and get your grandmother
2:08 am
and wind up killing your grandmother that is if you would run mother survive whom was nursing home do you think the moment after he said that he was internally regressing setting himself up like that or is he just clueless i'll never forgive this man for making my friend die alone in a nursing home don't like wrong get me a grandmother. in march 2020 cuomo ordered nursing homes except covert positive patients because local hospitals at the time were overwhelmed critics though say the decision increased the death toll among residents new york state has one of the highest covert mortality rates in the u.s. with care home deaths there and 14000 the governor has also been accused of hiding the truth figures however he's repeatedly insisted he will not resign because he doesn't see the miscount as a cover up. years 3328 died in hospital
2:09 am
died in a nursing home they died. tracy elven an advocate for those in nursing homes and whose father died in care in long island thinks quote most comments ignore the reality of the situation them our seniors trusted us to protect them and what do we can we get a governor that failed us and arrogant and makes these tone deaf remarks that continues to twist denies that he placed in the hearts of us the grieving family members we had our leaders are in hell to arm and the head of the and i each out in february telling us citizens that we knew that it was most deadly to the elderly back then in february so when you sign an executive order that lets a virus that is known to be the most evil elderly people even with elderly people i don't want to sound dramatic but that sounds a lot like murder and we need to know why he did it was there
2:10 am
a monetary reason that he did it all of this needs to be investigated and every time a ficci might get away with it he opens his mouth and he buries unsubtle little bit deeper plus the fact that we have over 15000 evangelists on our side to never discount beatles. usa to kansas failed to overturn the governor's veto of a new bill that would have banned transgender females from participating in women's sports the bill was previously passed by both sides of the state's legislature its proposed stopping anyone born male from participating in women's sports but it didn't apply to those biologically born as women from playing in men's activities it would have required public schools and college teams in the state to have 3 categories of sport kansas governor laura kelly explained why she vetoed the bill. this legislation sends a devastating message that kansas is not welcome into all children and their families including those who are transgender while already at
2:11 am
a high risk of bullying discrimination and suicide kansas is an inclusive state and our laws should reflect our values this law doesn't do that since republicans couldn't stop abortions there aren't a transgender rights big win for the family and those athletes i am annoyed by this they have grown up as men head there is trans physical ability not a level playing field it's really stupid kansas should frank very governor for saving them from the stupid it comes as 34 states consider disqualifying transgender girls from playing in interschool team is 5 regions of already brought into law we talked to lawyer stephanie hayden and also radio sports more about whether the issues are a dog whistle for transphobia and who should decide if such outlets participate in sports or not. what with the rights of women and it's under your new york times a couple sports on our radio show recently committed cease interview that they have
2:12 am
concerns for day themselves feel that this is arguments going on the board their heads will hear it stay with us you have to suffer there is a dangerous well this is really rude who will take advantage of listen to grants of goodwill of a lot of the society who really believes the situation here or there are you know deadly consequences what this is a balance in my view is using the argument about access to sport transgendered women and bells as a dog whistle for transpose be at lest the real heya this not sick of what people call biological men out and say trans women killing all to join female sports as a way of securing medals that they otherwise would not sit you know if they were competing against biological men in elite sports i don't think there is you know there's there's not transformed me in this and i got into it and wasn't bringing
2:13 am
transco me that he's a dog that has a my argument saying there i don't want to see a man who's transitioned into a female that's a greener and placed my daughter in that's not trying to all be just as commonsense this is just a scary story which is broad town waltz again too. i probably take the view that trans women are anything all the ball all the women you know women's sports of women's sports and i'm not saying that's appropriate in every sport that somebody who was formally male should be allowed to compete in some spots that would be ridiculous however if the governing body of the sport takes the view that trans women trans tales can compete safely and fairly then lies in lots of that and if we look at the rules who are bigger we broadcast how they got in the states it's not their child's issue mero who compiz their high schools and universities have to
2:14 am
lead or people who present themselves or 2 who approve feel themselves female today should be given the same rights and be there to be a team and sports is sort of being used right now and a lot bigger that's flying into less assertion in the states and in the senate floor under the golden rule in the end. it is so so messy and so dangerous politics should be kept down to sports it is not the business in my opinion of a state legislature to start passing legislation restricting access to sport for any group in money feeling the way the should be dealt with is that each individual sport violates governing bodies should make a decision on what is best for the sport the some sports for example where it can be argued that the said call biological differences are not going to make a difference to how severe or certain way out of the one of the poles or that there
2:15 am
will be a separate category 3 male female arms your next category or the green have to caucasus solutions that are. looking for a sporting going to view or forcing a lot of people who know about general interest is worth while to get involved in it because it suits syria's gender and that just is not going. female athletes people see sports administrators what is best for their people and they are still going to be. a tsunami of infections is lead to almost 400000 registered cases of covidien in india with over 3000 people dying every day there at the moment it's a really unwanted global record hospitals are running short of oxygen still a mass funeral pyres are burning almost nonstop while concerned countries are sending medical aid of course locals are also stepping in to help.

2:19 am
how should we interpret the recent f.b.i. raid on the home of former trump lawyer rudy giuliani a legitimate investigation into wrongdoing or a strong and very public political warning is trump his former circle and supporters the real target can the average citizen trust the f.b.i. . again israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has missed his chance to form a new coalition government and the deadline expired midnight tuesday his failure to reach an agreement could push his local party into opposition for the 1st time in well over a decade israel's been in political deadlock now for the past 2 years during this time for parliamentary elections a failed to produce
2:20 am
a stable government despite reaching out to rivals including the leader of a small islamist arab party netanyahu was unable and of the day to seal a deal within the 4 we granted by the country's president a sister channel r.t. arabic spoke to former israeli prime minister ehud olmert he says in his view netanyahu is nearing the end of his career. as one everyone knows well you know he's in very very bad situation he's at the very end of his career he's going to be kicked out from the government he's not going to be the next prime minister of israel that a sailor really 2 years ago and then was right in our last interview i told you he will not win any elections when you didn't win the election so he was when the palais thing where we went to for the win the election campaign theme 2 years because netanyahu couldn't win the elections and therefore when you don't win the

elections when you are in bad shape when you have troubles when you we have to stand in court when you have political rivals from all sides what is left for you to do is to use to shout to to show off. an elementary school principal is under investigation in florida after spanking a 6 year old instance raise questions asking why such punishments continue in a country that of course prides itself on being a beacon of democracy well i'm open reports. now you would think that teachers beating their students in order to keep them in line is a thing of the past and certainly doesn't happen nowadays well if you think that you are wrong a recent incident in florida caught on video sparked outrage here's what happened to a 6 year old girl who allegedly damaged a school computer and there is disturbing video this morning of a school principal hitting a 6 year old student with a wooden paddle now the video was recorded by her mother she came to the school in
2:22 am
order to pay a fine for the damage to property now the mother did not speak english and feared for her immigration status so rather than intervene she discreetly took out her phone and recorded how the principal spanked her daughter with the help of another staff member nobody would have believed me i said my daughter so old parents can realize what's happening in the school now the official rules of county school don't permit for students to be hit but apparently it does happen however many counties throughout florida do have official policies permitting the use of corporal punishment elementary school principals are now able to paddle misbehaving students in marion county and many people at our morning news meeting wondered could bay area schools be next piece of video showing 2 adults at an elementary school in georgia prepared to paddle a 5 year old child it's perfectly legal in that state and in 18 other states 19 us states maintain laws allowing corporal punishment in public schools and almost
2:23 am
every state keeps it legal in private schools now some say this is just part of the religious and traditional cultures of some regions throughout the united states but others say this is an outdated authoritarian practice pretty much child abuse and it has no place in modern education point using and giving indications to our children who would employ reduces the amount of education and. mindset that a child could have while learning so i would say since that's the point of going to school in. we're dealing with a wooden board is counterproductive to all children having the possibility to excel in schools where the poor school or very well reschooling children do better when they feel safe people across the country have very strong opinions about this disciplinary practice i feel like that's a something that a parent should do like that kind of discipline should come from parents and teachers should. just shouldn't be allowed to do that it's not in their job
2:24 am
description i will definitely make sure that those people build to jail because. i don't think they can tell you this is the answer for punishment i think that he said it was a lot of ways to. make sure that the kids that are in the house the fact that beating children as a routine form of punishment in schools across the country certainly flies in the face of the image the united states has constructed for itself around the world the very sad thing about it is that i mean there are you store a whole reasons i'll put it like that for why re still having it but i think one of the saddest things about it is that there are over 2 dozen in other nations that will not practice until we so that type of violence is going on in our schools and there's no signs that proves that this helps and as a matter of fact the top schools in our nation frown upon the use of the word employed so that kind of tells us something right there about its necessity.

russia's branded francis something about some of the paris is an e.u. coordinated political stunt it comes off to moscow place sunshines on a.t.u. citizens under strictures on diplomatic missions here in russia. in our opinion the fact that the russian ambassador to france was summoned to the country's foreign ministry is clearly part of a political stunt coordinated by you member states and mostly repeats what was said to russia's representative to the u. the bloc previously levied sanctions against russia and some states expelled diplomats over the jailing of alexa novelli rusher in turn has placed a travel ban on 8 top e.u. officials in retaliation a move the e.u. president branded groundless moscow has stressed the movers an act of protest could be reversed at any moment we have repeatedly made it clear that it wasn't asking started this war for sanctions but to tell you moments we had only to walk our part

of the path to end this pointless confrontation in which there will not and cannot be any witness hostile policy towards russia has been pursued by only a small group of individual countries to their own detriment. political commentator more believes the e.u. simply following the example set by the united states. well again i mean the russians obviously not started the sanctions regime and the sanctions game so i would say that the russians the french must know that and the europeans must know that too my problem with the europeans is that they are very ably following the americans. legally those elected ones. at least with. his actions will be. willing to have. these decisions. just. to the
